Hi Carlo,

Sorry to hear about your situation. Have you talked with your doctor about developing a tapering plan/schedule in order to gradually wean you off the Hydrocodone? I realize it can't be stopped abruptly without experiencing withdrawals, so this is probably the safest approach (in my opinion).

Although if you needed more help with the cravings, something like Suboxone may be beneficial as well? This medication is widely used for treating opioid dependence and there is honestly an overwhelming amount of support on this site from those who've had success with using Suboxone for such purposes.

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Suboxone Details, but I'd also recommend browsing through some of the related threads here just to get an idea of what to expect from it.

Hope this helps!

More to the point,how do you manage to find a doctor willing to provide this kind of relief?! Just taper gradually,by breaking the tablets.most are scored for easy breaking. Save the extras you have.Next time you might not be so fortunate, to find a doctor who cares about your pain.
